Annie Ups the Ante
Cream cheese or soft goat cheese in scrambled eggs. Put the cheese in the hot pan after any veggies you've sauteed and before the beaten eggs. If no veggies, then before the beaten eggs. Let it melt a bit. Add eggs. Cook as you normally would. Creamy delicious goodness.
I purchased cocoa (thank you Dr. Bork Bork) today and already have cayenne pepper, so I may try hot cocoa with cayenne pepper tonight. Chili later in the week fersure.
Left over sweet potatoes, chunked out of skins, into a frying pan with a large amount of melted butter. Fry until crispy brown, then sprinkle with cinnamon. Serve hot.
LCHF since Oct 2011
Last night I put some ricotta, cream cheese, cocoa, a tiny splash of almond milk, and non caloric sweetener in the food processor. It was yummy. Remembered the cayenne pepper and added a little of that - even yummier!
I'm thinking this spicy/sweet thing is well worth exploring.
Sweet potatoes and butter - awesome!
Most of my lunches fit this bill ...
I just shred some lettuce, sometimes mix it up with some interesting leaves or white cabbage ... or red cabbage, then some tomato, cucumber, radish, perhaps a little cheese, some protein over the top, be it fish, canned fish, shredded chicken, leftover meat, whatever I have ... and a boiled egg. Sometimes an avocado.
Whatever I have to hand ...
... and it's always good.
It's basically, Mark's 'Five Minute Lunch' but I don't have that cool drawer he's got.
I like those easy go-to meals. Eggs are like that for me - I'll throw just about anything into scrambled eggs. Your big ass salad sounds terrific.
The Post Workout Potato Pancake Frittata or something like that
Slice up potatoes (I like the sweet ones after a big workout) using a mandoline, fairly thin so they don't take too long to cook. Get out your nonstick pan and drop them in there on medium-high, cover with a lid. Let them sorta steam in their own moisture for a little, and keep moving them around and flipping til they're fairly cooked through. Then add some spices---I use nutmeg, cinnamon, and a bit of turmeric usually. Then crack a few eggs over the top and fill in the rest of the pan with egg beaters/whites if you want. Cover that sucker up and let it cook a few minutes. Then throw the pan under the broiler for a minute or two til crispy perfection. Sprinkle on some more delicious spices, and voila! I usually eat it with greek yogurt and berries.
